    Hours and Hours of delving reveals a memorable RPG with more than enough room to grow.

    Dragon Age: Origins

    Hours and Hours of delving reveals a memorable RPG with more than enough room to grow.

    Dragon Age: Origins came to the Xbox 360 with a notable degree of hype. It was, after all, cast as a kind of spiritual successor to one of the most beloved RPG's of all time: The Baldur's Gate series. What's more, the ga... Read Full Review

    Plants vs. Zombies

    This addictive little gem may seem as though it'd be best played in short bursts, but good luck getting yourself to stop

    Plants vs Zombies is simple. It's a simple game that I often play in windowed mode whilst I take care of some other business. Of course, that may not be the smartest decision, because Plants vs. Zombies is also a game th... Read Full Review

    Simply atrocious. There is not a single thing that this game does well, and as such, It is an irrevocable failure.

    Simply atrocious. There is not a single thing that this game does well, and as such, It is an irrevocable failure.

    My goodness. I believe this may be one of the single WORST games I have ever played! I'm so overwhelmed by that notion that I'm just not sure where to start…. The concept? It doesn't sound so bad does it? Take an awa... Read Full Review

It's solid- like an uninteresting, understimulating rock that literally brings nothing new to the table.

    Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

    <br /> It's solid- like an uninteresting, understimulating rock that literally brings nothing new to the table.

    Simply put, Warhammer Online might as well be called a darker version of any of its fantasy-heroic-questing cousins (be they World of Warcraft, or everquest 2, or what have you), because the game really doesn't bring m... Read Full Review

    This expansion represents what the original game should have been, but now, it doesn't do enough to save the franchise.

    Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

    This expansion represents what the original game should have been, but now, it doesn't do enough to save the franchise.

    While Kane's Wrath certainly improves upon the Commander and Conquer 3 formula, its improvements to the core game don't fix what is inherently a failure to begin with, and a game made worse at some points, via the introd... Read Full Review

    A heavy reliance on 'the way things were' makes Command and Conquer 3 a tired, old, and uninspiring strategy experience.

    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

    A heavy reliance on 'the way things were' makes Command and Conquer 3 a tired, old, and uninspiring strategy experience.

    It doesn't get much more unfortunate than this. The Command and Conquer strategy series was once at the forefront of strategic gaming on any gamer's mind. PC's across the globe were once littered with Command and Conqu... Read Full Review

    The first true family gaming expirience which can be just as competitive as their real counterparts. This one's a keeper

    Wii sports comes bundeled with the Wii system, and, I've got to be honest when I say that even if it wasn't bundeled I'd still love to get my hands on it. Truth be told, this game, upon first glance doesn't look like muc... Read Full Review

    Spore

    Like a glass of self-stirred chocolate milk Spore held so much promise, until you realize it's mixed all wrong.

    Spore was my first, and( thus-far ) only preorder, and from E3 to Tokyo and Leipzig, I, like so many of you out there, followed this game from its inception to the days prior to its release. When those days finally dr... Read Full Review

    Yet another madden that proves that next-gen football isn't a by-word for the next step in football gaming.

    Madden NFL 09

    Yet another madden that proves that next-gen football isn't a by-word for the next step in football gaming.

    Well, there I was. The year was 2007, and I had so quickly laid Madden 08 on the 360 to rest: "I will never buy another madden game again, before I rent it!" I yelled to my (equally) madden-enthused bro. "The progre... Read Full Review

    A unique but flawed expirience that can be both easy and difficult to reccommend at the same time, for various reasons.

    Call of Juarez is an interesting game to review. By all accounts now, it's getting a bit long in the tooth, released more than a year ago now and as such, that may change the perspective I take on it, given what's been r... Read Full Review

    This little creative tool does what it set out to do, and does it so wonderfully that it's easily recommendable.

    An exhilarating, emotional and engaging campaign and a deep multiplayer expirience makes CoD4 an astounding expirience.
